Making learning fun: Purvis Primary School students P2 West Richardson pose in front of a newly painted map at the Warwick school (Photograph by Blaire Simmons)

A giant map of Bermuda is being used by Purvis Primary School to make learning Stem and social studies fun for the Warwick school’s students.

Art and social studies teacher Kievone Simmons completed the art on the school’s junior block in January with the help of other teachers and staff. It quickly became the backdrop to many activities.

Enid Furbert Jacobs, the principal, said: “We know that children learn best when doing.” She added that the work was central as a teaching tool for the school’s Heritage Month activities, particularly it’s “Parish Hop”, when aspects of Bermuda’s history were explored via “the nine parishes and St David’s”.
